A favourite of mine is Indian food, so when my friend made this slow cooker butter chicken, we were head over heels! I don't think I've tasted a better Butter Chicken. This is great to put into the slow cooker in the morning and come home to a house that smells gorgeous. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread.

This is really simple with no need to marinate. Can make it as hot as you want - although Jalfrezi is normally medium hot. Just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and enjoy the smells throughout the house!!!

This hearty, spicy beef curry is only for those that can handle the heat. I prefer to make it in the slow cooker, but it can be made hob also. Great served over mashed potatoes or rice.

This recipe has been with me for over 30 years, it was given to me by a Kashmiri guy I shared a house with when I was 17. This is his mum’s family recipe. Kashmir's cuisine combines the area's fruits and nuts with the ingredients and the cooking style of the Moguls. This rich stew makes a marvellous main dish. Serve it with rice or crusty breads. This is lovely!

This lamb shank recipe was initially given to me as a family favourite from a mate at work. I've prepared it in a slow cooker and made it as easy as possible to prepare. It has a fantastic flavour and the meat just falls off the bone. I have made this in the oven as well and doubled the quantities for four people and it tasted just as good, only everybody went in for seconds and there were no leftovers.

A casserole of spicy chickpeas with a slight tang, perfect for winter get-togethers in front of a warm fire.

A wonderfully flavourful versatile spicy curry with Indian and Jamaican influences. Goat or mutton is marinated overnight for depth of flavour, then slowly cooked for at least 5 hours to create truly irresistible, melt-in-the-mouth meat and a dish to warm the soul.
